The World's Best Poetry, Volume 6: Fancy and Sentiment (Part 1) by Various ( - ).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-worlds-best-poetry-volume-6-fancy-and-sentiment-part-1-by-various/
The sixth of ten volumes of poetry edited by Canadian poet laureate Bliss Carman (1861-1929). This collection, the first of two parts, includes a range of notable poems that deal with both the realm of the fantastic and our own sensibilities, covering subjects such as the imagination; fairies; elves; sprites; myths; mysticism; legends; time; and human life. It also includes an introductory essay to the volume by poet and literary historian Charles Francis Richardson (1851-1913). ( Tomas Peter)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/wbppoemsoffancy0bliss
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: special --- please ensure that all intros/outros are consistent with the templates below, and that all files have end silences that do not exceed 5 seconds.

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

To the MC: please give Anthony (afutterer) access as DPL, and Sonia (Kitty) joint-access.

Sonia, Leanne Yau, Craig Franklin, Jason in Panama, and myself will be returning from Volume 5. This one will be a long one, folks, so buckle up! :mrgreen:

Sonia has already sent out a PM, but since it doesn't hurt to repeat the important details:

• There are 99 solo poems, so four of us will get 20 poems each, and one person 19.

• There are 34 DRs with 117 roles, so two of us will get 24 roles, and the rest of us 23.

Claiming is as before. Those who want particular poems will make a wishlist of 19-20 of them (you'll have to include any of the compulsory ones that were claimed via PM). Those who don't care will be at Sonia's mercy. :lol: For DRs, Google Docs will appear when the MW is set up, and there'll be a sign-up document as always for claims.

On board as always! I already sent my claims to Sonia some time ago but here they are again

Alright, here are my claims. I claimed 27 rather than 25, but I'm 99% sure we (and Jason, who I know likes the Shakespeares) will overlap on a fair few.
1. Fantasy by Ben Jonson
2. Fancy by John Keats
3. Queen Mab by Shakespeare
4. Fairy's Song by Shakespeare
5. Oh! Where Do Fairies Hide Their Heads? by Thomas Haynes Bayly
6. The Lady Lost in the Wood by Milton
7. The Siren's Song by William Browne
8. The Flitting of the Fairies by Jane Barlow
9. Una and the Red Crosse Knight by Edmund Spenser
10. The Bower of Bliss by Edmund Spenser
11. The Walker of the Snow
12. Quatrains
13. A Yellow Pansy
14. Echo and Silence
15. Time the Supreme
16. Procrastination
17. The Petrified Fern
18. The Generous Air
19. Life by Richar Henry Wilde
20. The Rose-Bush
21. London Bridge
22. The Crowded Street
23. The Wild Ride
24. Enid's Song
25. Fortune by Fitz-Greene Halleck
26. Opportunity by John James Ingalls
27. At Midsummer by Louise Chandler Moulton

hey Leanne ! great we are fast this time.

So here is my list again, to make it official:

The Djinns by Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
Tam O’ Shanter by Robert Burns (1759–1796)
The King’s Highway by Harriet Waters Preston (1836–1911)
Outward Bound by Thomas Bailey Aldrich (1836–1907)
The Haunted Palace by Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
The Sunken City by Wilhelm Müller (1794–1827)
The Walker of the Snow by Charles Dawson Shanly (1811–1875)
Far-Away by George Sigerson (1836–1925)
To-morrow by Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
Ave atque Vale by Rosamund Marriott Watson (1860–1911)
This Life by William Drummond of Hawthornden (1585–1649)
Good Life, Long Life by Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
Life by Richard Henry Wilde (1789–1847)
Address to the Mummy at Belzoni’s Exhibition by Horace Smith (1779–1849)
The Crowded Street by William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)
Fame by Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
Opportunity by William Blake (1757–1827)
Undeveloped Lives by William Edward Hartpole Lecky (1838–1903)
Illusions by Robert Underwood Johnson (1853–1937)
Beauty by Edmund Spenser (1552?–1599)
Greatness by Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
Old Age and Death by Edmund Waller (1606–1687)
To a Skeleton—Anonymous

So far we have three overlappings, so we are absolutely fine, since we claimed more than our share of 19 or 20 poems:

The Walker of the Snow by Charles Dawson Shanly (1811–1875)
Life by Richard Henry Wilde (1789–1847)
The Crowded Street by William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

Waiting for Tomas' choice now, and in case Jason is absolutely dying to get some Shakespeare. But many of the Shakespeare's are DRs anyway, and will be claimed later on once the google docs are up.

So am I to take it that our claims are solid if Jason and Tomas have no complaints? And we just leave the poems we overlapped on?

yes we have to wait for Tomas, he wanted to have some claims in I think. Jason and Craig so far want me to do the choosing but maybe Jason has a Shakespeare he likes to. If not, I'll assign him some which are not in your selection.

But anyway, I had 23 claims and you 27, so we need to cut down our list to 19 or 20.

I guess Tomas will wake up soon and check in.

Tomas,

I can MC this for you.

MW is set up.

Anthony (afutterer) should have access as DPL, and Sonia (Kitty) joint-access.

I am moving this to Reader Found since you are not looking for other readers.

Strange - the scans for pages 8 and 9 appear to be missing from the Introductory Essay.

- - - --
Google has the pages ( https://books.google.com/books?id=BoJHAQAAMAAJ&pg=PR27&lpg=PR27&dq=Poems+of+Fancy+Poems+of+Sentiment&source=bl&ots=u-WoEv5vcZ&sig=shBMVCA68KDVLoiVEWVRng5ADyg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi-p7nUnYXWAhXI5iYKHYabClkQ6AEIPjAJ#v=onepage&q=Poems%20of%20Fancy%20Poems%20of%20Sentiment&f=false)

page 8 is a continuation of copyrights
page 9 starts the Essay.

Thanks, David! :) I'll kill two birds with one stone by populating the MW and making a wishlist.

We have the preface covered in a Google Doc, so we won't be using Archive for that part of the text.
